Battle Creek Enquirer:

Longtime WBCK radio host Dave Eddy announced plans Monday to leave his popular daily morning show after 47 years on the air.

Eddy's decision, which he is calling a "semi-retirement," was a long time in the making, WBCK program director Tim Collins said. "It's something that we've known and talked about on and off for a few years," Collins said. "Dave came to us last summer and said he wanted more time to travel and to spend more time at his vacation home in Florida." Eddy, 69, also known as "Battle Creek's Morning Mayor" will continue to voice WBCK's "Be Kind to the Citizen of the Day" each morning from a location away from the radio station. Eddy will also begin hosting the WBCK Saturday Morning Show beginning sometime in May, after he returns from Florida. Eddy, a native of Albion, began his career at WBCK in 1960 and began working the morning show in 1961... Local radio host to sign off after nearly 50 years on air (Tue, 1/8)
